I bought a 1968 mustang coupe from a guy in California that said it was a GT. Now I am trying to sell it and the guy that wants to buy it said it's not a GT. How do I know if it is a true GT and not a clone?? It has a 289 with a holley 4 bbl and C-4 transmission. Other than that, I don't know what else to look for. Thanks for any help you can give me.

The easiest way is to check the engine code on the VIN. If your car has a "C" code, 289 cu in engine, it can't be a factory GT. The smallest engine available in a GT was the "J" code, 302 cu in engine. There are a number of other things, including the size of the front sway bar, rear spings, GT fog lamps, GT gas cap, C-stripe, styled steel wheels with GT hubaps and some others. Hope this helps.
